I’ll be in San Francisco this weekend helping run the Apache Spark hackathon, and afterwards I’ll be at Spark Summit 2015.
If you’re curious at all about Spark, you should come out and hack with us. We’ll have some fun data sets and help you find a team.
You can take the free Spark Fundamentals course on Big Data University to brush up on your Spark skills. Spark is a framework for fast in-memory and batch analytics processing. It’s algorithmically smarter and so a lot faster than traditional Hadoop.
There’s $10k in prizes at the hackathon.
